If you’re a charity or voluntary organisation in Dacorum, there’s plenty of help out there to get your project off the ground.
Support4Dacorum is a new support service for voluntary and community groups, managed by Community Action Dacorum and funded by Dacorum Borough Council.
Based in two buildings in Hemel Hempstead – the Roundhouse at the Marlowes and a building on the High Street – they offer a wide range of support for charities and community groups, including: helping them to understand the roles and responsibilities of trustees or management committees; offering funding advice and support with grant applications; organisational development, including policies, procedures and project development; and help to recruit and manage volunteers, partnership working and networking events.
‘We also organise a number of local events ourselves where we encourage voluntary sector groups to have stalls to raise money and their profiles in the local community,’ says community development manager, Loretta Anderson.
Annual membership is just £30 plus VAT. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.support4dacorum.org.uk.
